Instructions


1. For the White Wine Tomato Basil Sauce:
Heat oil in a large non-stick saute pan over medium heat. Add crushed red pepper flakes and garlic and saute for 1 minute, or until garlic is fragrant. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they're soft and blistering, but still hold their shape, about 12 minutes. Add in the white wine, stir, and allow the mixture to come to a light simmer. Stir in the basil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer the sauce into a bowl and set aside until needed.


2. For the Cod:
Heat oil in a large non-stick saute pan over medium heat. Season both sides of cod with salt and pepper. Place cod in the oil and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Then lower the heat and cook for another 5 minutes or until it's cooked through.


3.Pour the white wine tomato basil sauce over the cod and serve at once
